Product DescriptionThe Lake Country Force Grey Heavy Cutting Pad will help remove those heavy swirls and imperfections with ease! If you notice that your paint is starting to look dull and it no longer pops, this pad is the perfect starting point. Pair this pad with a strong cutting polish or compound you can expect to safely and efficiently remove noticeable surface defects like heavy oxidation, swirls, ultra fine scratches, spider webbing, etc. The key to success with this pad is in the hybrid foam technology (highlighted more below) and dense foam makeup. This foam is extremely durable and resists collapsing with heat. This helps you get better results, without having to worry about damaging the pad. You may notice a very light haze on the surface after using the pad, but this is to be expected and can be easily removed with a lighter pad and polish combination. Upon completion you'll be impressed at how many of those surface imperfections have been removed and your paint is really starting to shine!
What are "Force" Pads?
The Force line of pads is an upgrade of the popular Lake Country Hybrid pad line. The Force line features the same awesome Hybrid Foam Technology that was used in the Hybrid line, just tweaked for a more user friendly experience. This foam is super dense, which increases durability and keeps the polish you are using from absorbing into the pores and cells of the pad. This means the polish is left on the surface of the pad, allowing you to have a longer work time and achieve better results faster. Force pads are 1.25" thick and buffer pads in general have started to shrink in overall thickness. The .875" (7/8") thick pads you are seeing pop up today, produce less heat and work great on Dual Action (DA) polishers. With forced random orbital (i.e. Flex XC 3401 VRG) and Rotary polishers, detailers have found that thicker pads, which many companies have been moving away from, can actually be easier to work with and bring you better results. Do not forget that these Force pads also work great on your Dual Action polisher. Some people like the thin pads for less heat generation, but if you like thicker pads, the Force Pads are great!

Very heavy cutting pad - we removed some deep RIDs with one pass on a super lower setting of 2 on a Rupes Mk2. Surface almost feels like 3000 grit sandpaper but finishes down better. Quick pass with polish and most panels would be ready to go.

Wow this thing cuts. This was my first thought when i used it. After a small hood section of 4 passes i wiped compound off & was able to see the scratches i hoped not to wet sand completely gone. Then i looked closer for swirls & the paint was nearly perfect. Would strongly recommend using this pad before wet or dry sanding. I used it with Meguiar's M100 & Wow.
